Names and Faces from the Past.

Lionel Wainwright - Chief electrical superintendent.

Regretfully we have to note that Mr. L. H. R. Wainwright, our Chief Electrical Superintendent, will be retiring at the end of March of this year.
Mr. Wainwright joined the Company as an "Assistant" in 1932, in the depths of one of the worst depressions the Shipping Industry has ever experienced.

Raymond (Danny) Trigg - Chief Engineer.

I was really sad to learn of Danny Trigg's passing. What a guy and what an engineer. I sailed with him on a number of trips but one of my favourite memories of Danny was when he and I were standing by the Panamax "Orient City" fitting out at Sunderland Shipbuilders...

Jack Chatten - Second Engineer.

I joined the indian on the 5th May 74 and left on the 1st October 74 that was the trip Evan Walmsley was C/O, Jake Vaughn was Captain and Malcalm Raynor was C/E.
Jackie left the ship towards the end of the voyage in I think Yokohama and that was his last trip I'm almost sure.
